A Short Walk with Karen Durham around Porthclais Area
Chris Morris who was to lead the walk today was unfortunately ill so Karen led the walk instead on Saturday 6th May 2018.
A total of fourteen ramblers joined Karen on Saturday 6th May at Porthclais. On a glorious sunny day the group walked to St Justinians via Ramsey Sound, taking a break at Porthlysgi Bay where one rambler went for a paddle.
At Ramsey Sound a mist covered the island of Ramsey, which cleared whilst we had our lunch. Unfortunately no seals or dolphins were spotted in the water today.At St Justinans we passed the lifeboat station and went inland making our way back to Porthclais.

Gower Walk from Reynaldston led by Chris Wellings
The weather was just right for todays walk on 12 May 2018 with the promise of a dry day. Fourteen of us gathered in the village of Reynoldston amongst the free roaming cattle and ponies that passed by. We started our walk in an upward direction until we met the ridge where we enjoyed splendid views over the River Loughor estuary and beyond.
We then dropped steadily downward through boggy land without clearly defined paths and found our way off the hillside and proceeded through Leason to the edge of the saltmarsh. We followed the path through fields along the edge of the the salt marsh and passed Weobley Castle looming above us. This is a 14th century fortified manor house, in the care of Cadw. We continued on to Landimore and skirted around North Hill Tor and were able to view the amazing pancake flat area around us.
We left the marsh here and walked up to the village of Cheriton, turned left by the church and followed the Burry Pill through the fields back to Stembridge. From here we negotiated several more stiles and climbed steadily through pasture land before reaching the open moorland again and admired the views back to the estuary and over towards Oxwich Bay as well. Eventually we arrived back at our cars and enjoyed refreshments in the local Inn after a lovely day out.
